As there is a standby node, I believe that there should be minimal to no downtime during the upgrade.


The standby nodes maintain a copy of the primary node. In the event of a failure or maintenance.
The standby node is immediately promoted to primary and begins serving requests while a replacement standby node is provisioned in the background; so there won’t be any downtime.
